THE FIRST AND ONLY INDEPENDENT VOICE FOR DOG LOVERS.
PRODUCED BY PEOPLE AS PASSIONATE ABOUT PUPS AS THEIR AUDIENCE.
TCR has stringent policies in place for our reporters and for how we source, including making sure a source is always asked about conflicts. No anonymous sources. And we conduct our interviews in live conversations. We do not practice email journalism.
Our first obligation is to our readers. Because of our business model, which is subscription-based, our readers are also our customers. Few if any other online journalism entity focused on dogs operates this way.
JOURNALISM POWERED BY A PASSION, TEMPERED BY A COMMITMENT TO FAIRNESS
THE CANINE REVIEW provides dog owners with quality, independent reporting and analysis on topics such as dog health care services, costs, and insurance; nutrition and dog food safety; law and policy issues involving dogs; and product safety and quality control issues across the pet industry. In addition to our feature stories, subscribers will have exclusive access to our database of profiles on private breeders as well as animal shelters across the country. These profiles are written by a team of reporters who conduct on-site interviews whenever possible.
NO CONFLICTS, NO AGENDA: OUR READERS ARE OUR ONLY CUSTOMERS AND CANINES OUR ONLY CONSTITUENTS
The pet industry is one of the largest, fastest growing industries in America. But it lacks the kind of regulatory safeguards found in goods and services for people and especially for children. And it has not yet been faced with the kind of accountability that strong, independent journalism brings.
TCR’s mission is to provide fair, complete, and unvarnished information related to dogs. We believe that caregivers and vendors devoted to treating dog owners and their loved ones professionally and fairly deserve a spotlight – as do those who operate outside those important boundaries.
